17" Lightweight Drag Racing Wheels/tires

I have (2) 17x7" Centerline Impulse wheels with BFG drag radials for sale. I NEVER did any burnouts on the tires and they have a ton of tread left. I cut nearly 2 tenths off my 1/4 times compared to stock tires/wheels.

The tires are 225/45/17 BFG G-Force drag radials and retail for about $135/piece.

These have the correct hub spacing for flawless fitment with stock style lugnuts. The offset of is +42mm, so they will be just about flush with the fender, but unless you have ZERO wheelgap they wont rub.

I'm willing to hear all offers, and if two people want the wheels/tires separate I will separate them.

I'm asking $325 or best offer. Shipping will be extra, depending on location.

Damn..if these were the original Impulse wheels I would be all over these


Anyway bump...

nice wheels and tires how much do they weight together? I could guess but I would like to know what you measure them in at.

If only Centerline made 17x8 wheels... sigh -_-

Actually they are the Impulses, but the Storms are just about identical and they are easier to find reviews on. IIRC the wheels/tires weigh 39lbs, compared to about 52lbs for stock 17" CL-S wheels/tires.

I have the original receipts also, with the remaining warranty from Centerline.

edit: Yep just checked they are the impulses, had myself second guessing myself since they are so similar. Fixed

DAMN

the Impulses are uber lighter then the storms. The storms are the same but without the extra back spoke maching to make them even lighter.

Yeah my CLS rims with Falken tires weighed in at 45.8lbs
How much do those tires weigh? The wheels should be 11-12lbs. from what the Centerline spokeperson told me.

Well what I read and what is true didnt match up. All my paperwork says they are the impulses, and i'll double check on the back of the spokesfor the model number, but mine weighed exactly 16.5lbs without tires. The tire weighs 23lbs, so like I said 39lbs total.

This is all going from memory from 6 mos ago, so I'll have to double check the exact weights but I'm 95% sure thats right.

Wow? Really... kind of dissapointed in the wheels weight, im pretty sure they are lighter then that.

How did you measure the wheels/tires. I noticed that yuor CLS rims weigh 5lbs more then mine with tires on them.

If they are in fact 17x7 Centerline Impulse wheels, they're supposed to be 11.8lbs... one of the lightest production 17" wheels!!

Jump on this guys if you want to squeeze more perforance out of your car!

Yes, thats why I'm so intriqued its just the rims is not wide enough for my application

Yeah on wheelweights.net it says 11.8lb but you never really know if all those figures are accurate.

Get rid of your 16's they're crap Try and get some 17" S2K wheels I've been trying to find someone that would let me test fit them on my car and no luck.
The rear wheels are 17x8.5 +65offset (front wheels for Accord)
The front wheels are 17x7 +55 offset (rear wheels for Accord)
